Moral revolution at warp speed

In an essay at 9Marks, Albert Mohler really nails the current moral climate in the United States with this opening:
Western society is currently experiencing what can only be described as a moral revolution. Our society’s moral code and collective ethical evaluation on a particular issue has undergone not small adjustments but a complete reversal. That which was once condemned is now celebrated, and the refusal to celebrate is now condemned.

What makes the current moral and sexual revolution so different from previous moral revolutions is that it is taking place at an utterly unprecedented velocity. Previous generations experienced moral revolutions over decades, even centuries. This current revolution is happening at warp speed.
That's sad but true, and well stated. And the rest of Dr. Mohler's essay is equally as strong.
